We keep every phone active whether or not bundled minutes are purchased. If you use more minutes than you prepay, you will just be charged the regular rate for the phone you are renting. The phone never shuts off.
Our phones are shipped via FedEx with a variety of shipping options to ensure timely delivery.
Every phone is billed separately on a monthly basis. Once we receive the monthly bill for your phone, we look at the rental period you had the phone and charge you based on the minutes used within that time period.
Our standard rental package includes two batteries and a wall charger. If you plan on being in remote locations without access to electricity, we recommend the solar charger.
About 3.5 hours of straight talk time, 19 hours of standby, and if the phone is off and just turned on intermittently, the battery can last up to a week.
